Yes, the little patches (poptarts? I like that!) were lots of fun to make! Although I cheated and did the embroidery after I had sewn them together. Tried to get a proper twinchie shape, but it got a bit wobbly...

But: I received from Grab a coffee days ago, and just remembered there are no pictures yet! Argh!

So, here we go (not in order of unpacking, but changed around a bit for dramatic effect):

First thing I noticed (and had to put out of the way, because the 2yo loves to use as stickers on everything, so now it lives with the dvd collection for a start, thus the weird picture...):
A huge stack of Post Its, which I'll probably use for notes on the two response papers and essay I'll be writing over the next two weeks (hopefully).

Then was the cutest little pouch with a sweet flowers print and matching label (polkadot lining, btw, not pictured):

But one little pouch doesn't sound like Eszter, right? Right. So there was a little bit of stuff to fill it: Some scissor charms and a teeny tiny heart which makes me smile:

A beaded memory wire necklace/bracelet (Eszter?) in silver, purple & blue, that happens to match the grey, purple & blue t-shirt I'm wearing today:

And my favourite: A tree of life pendant! Very summery and springy, so a good counterpart to the ones I have from phoenixfiredesigns.

Thanks Eszter, I love everything, as usual! (Although those scissors are a bit creepy, like the kind of shears you'd use for chicken or branches...)  Grin

Well, I received today! And look what I got, a lovely little something from Sweden... (okay, not little, but very lovely!)

That scarf is perfect, really soft and cuddly and: mine, all mine!

(the colour is better in the first picture, there is much more teal & green than blue/aquaish)

This has been a good week! Yet another claim for me, hooray! Alwaysinmyroom claimed me twice, for something sewn and for supplies, and managed to stuff everything into one box.

So here are the supplies, all very well thought out for me and perfectly chosen, all together:

(not easy, I had to keep fighting my daughter off and then chase her to get the stuff back)

Look, lovely aqua and blue fabric with matching thread (+ black, which I always need):

Magnetic clasps for purses. Purple. Purple! I never even knew...

And there are zippers, mini containers (4 bigger round ones, and a stack of 13 for beads which are going to hold beading notions, I was looking for something like this just this week!), zippers, felt (much thicker than what I used for Ave's necklaces, cozy!) and a cool card made by underthemountain.

So this was one claim. And here comes the something sewn:

The pleated purse I wanted in a really big size. And black outside, pink lining. Happy me! Always, this is so beautiful and perfect and well done! With pockets! And with a little elephant as the zipper pull for the extra zipper pocket! And if you look closely, you can see a LE 2014 stamp inside the pocket:

And did I say it is huge? I put my class folder in there, that would be about 10x15 inches, I think. The tiny black thing in the little pocket (a perfect fit, by the way) is my phone, and the little book is 4x6. Huge!

And one more so you can see how it looks when I wear it:

Thank you very, very much, Always, I love everything! But that bag is just the best!

anna.wahnsinn claimed me for an embroidered pouch pendant and I absolutely love her take on them. I feel so well stalked. She did an awesome job of picking designs that are exactly right for me.

 Cheesy Well Ave, you are easy to craft for. You might have mentioned something about "anything Loki" once or twice, and I love that forget me not pincushion on your pinterest so much myself, I used that for the trial run, and I had this chain... That was the first time I tried this kind of embroidery, that was fun and very forgiving! But if you ever take that thing apart, you'll find a paper template in there. Next time I'll draw the design...

That felt should be 100% of some kind of acrylic by the way, I forget if this had a label, but that's just what you get here in the shops. You should see the white, that's practically see-through.

This is 100% cotton, do you recognize the fabric? Hanna likes it! And I have enough left over to line a little pencil case for myself!

Me again! I got my super duper microwavable potholder bowls from rscowtown today! They are perfect, thanks so much!

Here is a group shot with bowls in them for size reference:

A closer shot so you can see the patterns (the yellow green one is turtles, claimed by the 2yo already):

And my favourite (with my favourite dinner bowl, for when I eat alone after the kids are fed and asleep):

Buuut - that wasn't all. This was what I pulled out of the envelope: They came in a bright and lovely fabric bucket!

(pattern shot)

Love them! Thank you so much rscowtown, this is just what I hoped for and exactly what I need! And thank you thank you thank you for the fabric bucket, also exactly what I need, but very much a surprise!

I received from Averia! A lovely supply package with kiddie fabric, perfect for my little big one.

Curious George, Mickey Mouse & Cars:

Here you can see the size of those pieces:

Plus this adorable Minnie Mouse presmocked one:

... half of which is already turned into this:

(did not want to pose, dance or smile, but as she refuses to take the dress off now I might get a better pic later... maybe a better quality, too, these are weirdly small)

The ties are from extra wide bias tape I got from a previous round, I'll make slimmer ones some day, maybe black (well, when she needs longer ones, and that may take a while), but this was the perfect solution for me right now.

Thanks a lot Ave, I love everything, and as you can see so does Lea!

Forgot to post a picture of the second book from Ave, sorry! Love this, too. All about making tiny things!

I love the tea party tray!

Anna an Infinity scarf is a continuous loop,no beginning or end.

Ah thanks, I suspected as much. No funny twists then, like a moebius band or anything? Great!

I managed to make something for me, all from stash! Just small things, as usual.

And a purple/silver one, that just kind of happened. Nearly all glass/crystal on there is purple, I just couldn't get it to show up. The silver lined hearts really are grey. I practiced a bit with this.

A memory charm bracelet, all about what is important to me. I've been collecting these for quite a while, and started putting the bracelet together now. I'm not quite done, I need a dollhouse, a townhouse (I think), a leo to the libra and the two virgos, and two baby sparrows/birdies. Though I don't know where and when I'll find those, so I'll just wear this as it is now:

And I actually made a lightbox. What remains to be done is figure out the lighting (find my old desk lamp, for one thing). All stash: A cardboard box (diapers...), paper, glue. No picture of that, though.

Another kind of destashing: I'm selling off kiddie stuff, the pram, wicker cot, playpen, changing mat, things like that. Feels so weird! I don't want to let these things go, but I need the space, the kids are too big already, and the money won't hurt...

I meant to post a better pic of the tote bags, that totally slipped my mind, but here they are:

And two are already in use: The one on top has replaced the recently arrived six-pocket-tote for the stroller bag (that had been meant to go with the pram, different colour scheme) and fits one little backpack, bike helmet, water bottle, and various other items. Perfect! The one on the right is the thinner one, already folded up in my purse, and the tree/rorschach one will probably go and live in the basket thingy under the stroller seat. I love the long handles, the bags really hang at my side (and not in my armpit) and I can wear them across the body, too.

Me too! Love notebooks, and don't own any mugrugs yet, I don't know how that happened!

I'm done, too, here it is:

The iridescent beads look a little weird in the picture, they blend in a little more really.
